duckborg Posted January 6, 2015 Share Posted January 6, 2015 Hello all, Scott here. I have not even gotten to the...well whatever happens after this. Why am I here? Three main agendas. Recently mentioned to someone how I was going to drop some weight and they said, "that's funny because your so thin." Well despite that I am up twenty pounds in the last 2-3 years. This brings us to point two. I just went through a rather new and major knee surgery for a cartilage replacement. That's not possible you say? Well it is about to be. I am three months into recovery and in my opinion the swelling around the site of the surgery is not going down very fast, or at least not fast enough for me. In the course of examining causes and potential cures I was recommended this program from a new friend who described her journey with knee joint pain (that sounded curiously similar to mine) and how she resolved it through participation in the whole30. I am happy that I had the surgery and took steps to remedy my issue. But, whether the cartilage damage was from injury or other causes is unknown, but I want to cover all my bases. Dropping 10 pounds and providing my body with good nutrition is a win-win for the knee, so why not. Lastly the feeling in my gut. I had a good laugh at the section of the book that comments on the old limerick, "beans, beans, the more you eat....." I maybe don't feel awful, but there is a rock in my gut and I want it gone. Look forward to sharing with all you and changing my ways. Stand back everyone I'm going to do some science! Cheers, Scott Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
